This'committee has achieved excellent results already in Abbotsford Townslte, Matsqui and' Sumas Municipalities. However, it is, next to' impossible to approach every individual, aiid we  would ask any who have not been  solicited and who would -like to give  to this fund, to hand their subscriptions to one of these gentlemen or to  the Treasurer at the Bank. All subscriptions will be duly acknowledged  by receipt and publication in this paper.  Abbotsford and district has "responded very heartily to various  funds since the commencement of the.  war, but much money has been sent  from this district without the District  receiving proper credit for same.  -  There may be some. who ��������� do not  approve of buying guns, but now that  a committee has .been appointed and  properly organized donations-large  jcuvsmall will be~received''-an"d^iF'Seht'  iirmarked for-any special'object will  be put aside for that purpose.,Everyone cannot give a big sum but nearly  PUBLIC MEETING ON MONDAY  LAST IN THE GAZLEY HALL  An enthusiastic meeting, if not as  large as desired, waG held in the Gazley Hall on Monday, ^evening last, the  12th, to consider tli.o purchase of a  machine gun for tlie' B, C. Battalion  at the front. ������  In the absence of.Mr. R. A. Trethewey, who was unavoidably detained  .at the beginning of the meeting, Mr.  C. Hill-Tout took' the chair, being  supported by Reeve1 A. A. Cruick-  shank of Matsqui. and'Reeve Frank  Munroe of Sumas municipality.  The meeting opened with the National Anthem; and a patriotic .song  from Mr. Blair.      '"  Mr. W. Taylor; 'being.. ,appointed  secretary, gave reasons for the, calling of the meeting'' and outlitfed the  work already done He-reported that  it was -originally .intended^ ;tq. -raise  $1000 forgone Lewis Machine Gun,  but that as.$1100 had been promised  in three days, the'- 'meeting would'  ���������have to determine' what' should be  done .with any_surplus'funds; as the  ground had not yetlbeen covered and  probably- mbr.e' subscriptions would  roll in.

THE   MATSQUI   COUNCIL  The .regular meeting of the Matsqui council was held in the municipal hall on  Saturday July  3rd,  with  the reeve, in the chair and all members of the council in attendance. .

Birnie  to  the  effect  that    he     had  known him as a settler in the community since 1913 and that he.had  been improving his property by build  ing his house and clearing his land  since that time.    The clerk was instructed to reply that this statement  was not sufficient proof that he had  enough  improvements  to   have     his  property classed as Improved land.  -   From G.    H.    Loach,    protesting  strongly against being asked to endorse a cheque for road work and to  return it for taxes before he had received his tax notice.    The clerk was  instructed to reply that it was the intention of the council to inform every person who went to work on the  roads that their taxes would be held  out, payment of them being made by  cheques which would be endorsed and  returned,   and   by   this   method   the  Council 'i;wouldj-be.venabled'.-to. ,under-  raise^OOu-.for.twb guns in the'd^l^-3;m������re  ���������ad r"WOTk . tha1*'. lMy  .tricts of-Ahbotsford; Sumas and Mats-  ���������������'uld otherwise have been able to do  everyone can scrape up something,,  and it surely is the least those of us  (who from one reason and another  aren ot taking any other active part)  .can. do is to sacrifice a little and help  the brave boys who are, doing their  fluty for us.

McGowan,' A.'"Hulton-Harrop,  and D.1 McLagan-"were-appointed to  act'as collectors for the-fund and arrange for the purchase of the guns.  Mr. S. A. Morlcy was appointed  Treasurer.  It was stated at the meeting that  there would be no expenses charged  by the collectors of this' fund���������all  expenses, and there will be some, will  be given gratis.  It was decided that the disposition  of the guns should be left .to the B.  C.  Military authorities.  All subscriptions will be acknowledged in the Abbotsford Post, when  tlie list is completed and funds-collected; and the'disposition of all monies collected will be also placed in  the columns of this'paper. -  Anyone not at the meeting, missed  two most- excellent and enthusiastically patriotic speeches, the equal* of  which has never been heard in, Abbotsford; and Reeve A. A. Cruick-  shank and Prof. Hill-Tout.showed by  their little talk that-they realize the  true and awful meaning of the war  should the enemy be successful in  defeating the Allies; and also what; it  meant in the cause of freedom and  j extension of the liberties of the people in all parts of the world should  Britain and Allies be successful in  downing the"Kaiser and his military  ideas. They be.came, as it were  carried away into, the depths of the  subject and as one gentleman said,  'spoke right from the heart of a true  Anglo-Saxon' The audience highly  appreciated the two  speeches.  Mr. Cruickshank'appealed to have  no stone unturned to help win this  great war, and stated that more and  more recruits would, be wanted from  this and every part of the British  Empire before the battle'would be  won. "  Mr. Cruickshanks-two sons have  gone to the front, and it can well be  imagined how intensely interested  he.feels on this subject.  A hearty vote of thanks were accorded the following gentlemen: Mr.  A.  Hulton-Harrop,  Mr.  D.

Reeve A. A. Cruickshanks Mr. Hill-TOut and other speakers and the subscribers.  Mr. Hill-Tout read a letter he received from the Lieutenant-Governor  of B. C. with reference to a Commemoration Day to be observed on August  4 in every to.\vn, village or hamlet  throughout the British Empire.  This day in 1914 saw the gauntlet  thrown down to the German Military  party by the Free British Empire,and  it is desired to on this day bring  home to the people���������every man, woman and child���������-in the British Empire, why we entered the war and  what we are fighting for.  The proceedings will probably take  the form of Patriotic speeches and  songs.  A committee consisting of Messrs  Wiggins, Barrett, Taylor and Morley  were elected to make arrangements  for this day; further particulars will  appear in this paper.  All loyal subjects who can help on  this day in the way of speeches, patriotic songs, musical and instrumental solos, will' please give their names  to the committee.

A. BATES,  Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, JULY'10, 1915  Canada is coming into prominence these days more quickly  than it probably would in times fof peace. Our soldiers nave  eone to the front, and from tlie accounts we have seen in the  papers have saved the day and prevented the German rush to  Calais���������the German objective. Having won such laurels then  so far on the battlefield it is only natural that the people of the  British Empire, north, south, east and west should look with  favor upon a country that can produce such brave men, .capable  of such deeds. The conclusion, then would be that something  good can come out of Canada.' ������  Canada covers a large area of land fit for agricultural purposes has large resources'iu minerals which have never been  developed, the timber of the dominion is probably the largest  in the world���������at least in the British Empire. Our grain, our  minerals and our timber are required by the Mother country  and the Allies when the great, reconstruction period comes  as it surely must after the war is over���������possibly a little before.  There is no country so rich in the world as the Mother country,  and in return for what Canada has done in the way of great  assistance during tlie present war, it may be possible, that investments will be made in Canada during the next few years  that will develop the resources of this province in a way .that  we little dream of at the present time. There are hints even  now that Canada will prosper by the investment of capital that  previous to the war went in other directions.  Then let us not be down-hearted.  NEW   -WESTMINSTER   MAIIKET  Visitors to our chief city at the coast are surprised at the real  'dpwn-in-the-mouth feeling' of the once optimistic, and shall we  say boastful pride of that city, who took itself so seriously as to  believe that it was the 'whole cheese' in British Columbia. If it  was not to be started in Vancouver no industry in the province  was worthy of support by the people there. It was filled with  real estate agents to the brim who had for sale lands hundreds of  miles away from that city, and these far away lands were boosted  in preference to the fertile lands of the Fraser, in many cases  aud alwavs to the future detriment of the welfare of the big city  of the province. It is now remarked that no province is squealing so much about the hard times as the province of British  Columbia���������It should be Vancouver is crying aloud.  It is with pleasure that we notice that a Vancouver daily.is  doing a little boosting for this part of the Fraser Valley���������in the  fruit industry. It is only hoped that the good work will be continued and extended so that it will take in every- part of the Fra?  ser Valley and its individual farmers and fruit growers. Too  much of it cannot be done.  ��������� " No city can get along without the country around it. The city  can do much for the country and the small country village, and  so can the community surrounding a large city dp much for-the  city, The city town or village depends primarily on the agricultural background. It is the settlement of a few thousands  or hundreds of thousands, hemmed in on all sides by farms  and reached from all directions by roadways that lead out into  the open country and over which much of its trade travels. The  question of the city to.the country districts and vica versa is  an important one.  Much of the traditional separation between the city or town  and the country is due to what we may call natural causes, resulting from the conditions under which the towns have developed. The citv has its separate political organizations, its' own  government, its own enterprises to support by taxation from  within, and it has been interested mostly in its own development by attracting trade, seeking to establish urban industries,  and cherishing its ambition to become a city among cities.  The corporation line has become a boundary line between the  city arid the country, with the tide of trade flowing from the  country to" the town without a counter-balancing movement  out into the country to develop its resources and to foster its  life. The resources of the country have built up the city, or  town; and in many cases the public improvements resulting  from this wealth are largely applied in- the betterment of the  incorporated settlement. Sometimes the farmer comes to feel  that the town-centered community is selfish, seeking only to  advance its own interests alone, seeking the major benefit by  fixing both the price on what the farmer has to sell and on  what the farmer has to buy. This man not always be true, but if  is true in part, and there is just enough truth about it to cause  that feeling of separation of interests.  It has been said that the solution is to make the country  town or city a real part of country life, and to develop one  programme for the upbuilding of the town and the country,  life  of' the  town  cannot be separated  from the life  of  the  The    life    of     the    town    cannot    be    separated    from the  gize country affairs unless the towns are considered equally  in the process.    The interests of town and country merge and  cross.    The towns and some cities are the cross-roads of trade,  the tying centres where the business interests of all the farm-       _ ���������,  ers in the trade area head up and thus give employment to a bitterly,  certain population.    The average country town or big city is h������,u������ ������������������  an: agricultural distributing point, for the distribution of sup  plies and provisions to the farmer on the one hand, and for  the shipment,- assortment, or manufacturing of the farmer's products on the other.    The thrift of the farmers of the country  is the soul of the business life of all towns, large or small.  The town and country interests of our province are essentially one; their commercial life is largely one. The business  interests���������the merchant, the banker, the manufacturer, and all  tho rest���������must become alert to the necssity for creating fair,  and adequate relations with the land population in their own  trade area in the interests of their own greatest ultimate gain.  The sooner our cities get in closer touch with the country  districts of the province the sooner will we have a prosperous  B. C.  Co operation is the key-note.  ' The volume of supplies on the New  Westminster market showed a falling  off and trading in all lines was not  nearly so brisk last week as has  been the case for the past few weeks.  Evidently the- farmers of the Fraser  Valley are more concerned about the  safe harvesting of their hay and grain  crops than with the local market at  present and City Clerk Mackenzie pre  diets' a slim market for. some weeks  as a result.,  What supplies appeared however  were of exceptionally fine quality,  and especially was this t. oe yf the  fruit lines. Raspberries made'their  appearance in fair quantities, but the  demand was quite brisk for crate lots  which sold from $1.25 to $2.00'according to the size of the individual  boxes. Red' currants and blackberries sold at the same prices and trailing in these lines was a feature.  Meats showed a big falling eff in  the quantity displayed and also the  price took a slight drop all. round.  The supply is away in excess of the  demand just now, say local butchers  who predict a still further drop within the course of the week.  Chickens opened strongly and as  usual a very brisk trade was conducted at this section all morning. Prices  remained at last week's quotations.  Ducks sold around'.160 and were purchased solely by the Chinese buyers  Butter and eggs held firm at last  week's prices, although the supply  fell  off  considerably.

It has been.���������"If  I can't get raspberries.for so much I  won't use them." While at low prices the demand is very good. There  is ho fruit sold on this market as  popu.ar as raspberries hut any price  that looks high is instantly resented  with the feeling that the middlemen  arc getting too Ing a bite. With hard  times.* and curtailed incomes the public anger is at once aroused and a  boycott is really put into effect. The  recent conference gave the public the  impression that'the middleman is getting it all.  The markets have cleaned up nicely.' Quite a few raspberries have  come in soft. One peculiar thing  that we have noticed this season is  that out of a shipment in fine condition cne or two cratos will be decidedly soft.  Black currants are now beginning  to firll.
